    "A Strange Tale from Shakespeare"

    "The Winter's Tale" is full of characters who act inexplicably, with unusual plot developments which strain credulity. One of the critics I read called it "Othello" with a happy ending. Any Shakespeare fan will find it intriguing and worth listening to.
    I have heard both of Audible's versions of this play, and I recommend the other one. This version sounds as though it is coming from very far away at times, and there are places where it skips. I certainly did not recognize the voices of the great actors Ian McKellen or Corin Redgrave. Sound quality is just not great.

    "Good Stuff."

    This is a great adaptation of 'The Winters Tale'. The actors make what can be, at times, tough language to get to grips with, very accessible. To anybody needing to study this for School/College I would heartily reccomend a listed to this (even whilst reading it at the same time) as it gives a much greater understanding of the characters, their emotions and tone.
